Play. Inspire. Unite.
The Player Development department continues to put together a practice for coaches to use with their players across the province.
Each week will focus on one of the three LTPD development stages at the Grassroots level, which includes Active Start, FUNdamentals, and Learn to Train.
In this week's session, the Player Development department has focused on the Fundamentals level.
The objective of this session is for players to be able to change direction while dribbling.
Players will begin working on physical literacy by dribbling through gates and responding to specific cues for fundamental movements and problem solving.
After this, they will go into a 2v2 small sided game with end zones whereby changing of direction will.
From here, players will go in to a 1v1 scenario where they will be looking to penetrate the opposition and score.
Players then finish off in a game that is as close to the rules and regulations as they play on game day as players then have the ultimate challenge of using this skill to be successful in a game.
